I beleive in gifts that remain with you forever, making one remember that moment in their life when they received it. I save all my gifts and each means a lot to me coz they have so many memories attached to them they are almost my memorabilia.
I recently got in touch with this charming lady who makes some personalized gifts. Her work is just amazing, to top it all the love and affection that she puts in carving each piece certainly is transmitted to the person receiving the gift. You definitely must check out her shop on Etsy. The link is http://www.etsy.com/shop/BragAboutIt
Get something made from her and you'll believe every word i say.
